Cannot rate the Venus Cafe highly enough! The location is beautiful, the food delicious, and the staff are amazing! Staff were fantastic; really friendly, relaxed but professional, and went out of their way to ensure things were perfect. All our guests raved about the food, great veggie and vegan options too. Couldn't ask for more!

Super modern cafe overlooking one of the most pristine beaches I have ever seen. Stopped off here for a break while walking the coastal path between Torcross and Dartmouth. Cafe very clean and spacious with good choice of food. Excellent coffee and cakes. Nice service.

We discovered this beach many years ago on Honeymoon, this was our 33rd year of returning. Venus is the cherry on the cake. Food is always good and service is always friendly. As others have already said why can't other Beaches have this quality of Cafe. We visit just as a Wedding was taking place, it was raining just like... More

On arriving at Blackpool Sands, we decided to sit and have a coffee and a hot chocolate. The terrace is right on the beach so has amazing views and after going for a walk along the coastal path we decided to go back for lunch. Considering it's a beach cafe, the menu is quite extensive and they have a good... More

Why don't all beaches have a cafe of this quality? Toasted soda bread,perfect cooked breakfast all coupled with one the finest views in south Devon. The cafe is right on the beach and only a few metres from the waters edge. Fabulous. Great staff and friendly service too

I was really excited about a visit to Blackpool Sands after last summers visit where I clearly remembered the gorgeous crab sandwich on thick bloomer bread filled deeply with white and brown crab meat. Unfortunately this time as I opened the large takeaway box on the beach I was extremely disappointed with what I saw! A small thinly sliced sandwich... More
